The pharmaceutical industry is faced with multiple challenges to the status quo in the modern era.
These include a shift towards healthcare personalisation, continuous manufacturing, multi-process facilities, shortened commercial lifespans, and increasing
pressures to lower costs.
Companies are under increasing pressure to adopt new manufacturing methods within legacy plants. To meet these demands manufacturers must become more dynamic in how production and maintenance are scheduled.
However, there is a lack of specialist expertise needed to drive and deliver these critical industry changes. It is often not feasible to maintain the appropriate knowledge in-house to meet these needs. Therefore, the role of trusted, knowledgeable partners becomes more critical than ever.
SCRI-IS Technologies are that partner. Our comprehensive experience ensures that you always have the skillsets and knowledge at your fingertips to optimise production capacity, future proof your facility, and deliver projects on time and in budget from a single source.
Our multinational team leaders have over 50 years combined experience, gained from working with the largest international process industry firms on a wide range of large scale projects. This expertise and knowledge base means we are well positioned to understand and meet the varied needs of our clients.
